This is a hand painted limited edition cel featuring Bugs Bunny. Yes, the rabbit finally got his due. He is now at the top of the Hollywood industry by winning an Academy Award for best actor. The thing is in this scene from “What’s Cookin’ Doc?” the 1944 classic Warner Bros cartoon directed by Robert Clampett, the best actor award isn’t exactly an Oscar, but more a Bugs-Oscar. Still, any award is a good award for Bugs, as we all know he is the best actor…well, actor that’s a rabbit…in all of Hollywood. This special deluxe edition was created for the Ten Year Anniversary of the 1991 limited edition. This deluxe version of the cel is larger and hand painted with intricate shading and signed by Ruth Clampett, daughter of Robert Clampett.

Hand-painted limited editions recreate classic moments from great cartoons, using the same materials and techniques as were used in making the originals. Some limited editions are exact reproductions of frames from the films they represent, while others, such as Chuck Jones’ limited editions, are based on contemporary interpretations of great characters and scenes.
In either case, the animator’s drawing is transferred onto acetate cels, then each is meticulously hand-painted by studio artists. Each piece is hand-numbered in small edition sizes of between 100 and 750. In some cases the finished cels are then signed by the animator.
As the great majority of original cels from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s are no longer in existence, limited edition cels allow collectors an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest moments in the history of animation.
